Hot Summer day? Schedule a shoot in a river.

Its been quite toasty here in town lately – the perfect storm of hot and humid and downright  unpleasant to be working outside.  So, the answer to that is to schedule a shoot in a river for late afternoon and cool off while working.  Perfect.

Ive had images like these in my head for sometime now and Im glad that I had a small gap in my schedule to go out and shoot some personal work.  Im going to be waiting on the rest of the 4×5 to come back from the lab but for the mean time, here is a type 55 scan and a quick digital image (had to have something to play with).

As always, more to come…

Fotoworks wrap-up

Im still coming back from being in orbit/Fotoworks NYC all last week and trying to claw my way to the top of this pile of work that I left.  Regardless, last week was time well spent at Fotoworks and it was great to be back in NYC and of course to meet new photographers and creatives and see old friends as well.  We’ll see what comes of days meetings and handshakes and book showing but I have to think something will come of it.

I didn’t shoot really anything while in the city but was able to sneak away to the rooftop for a great sunset over the Hudson one night and then a rainy shot of the Empire State Building from the roof of my AirBnB lodgings.
More to come…

Some heavy metal images showing in Germany…

My European agent was kind enough to send me some images of a recent opening up at a photo festival (Horizonte-Zingst)on the North Sea where I had a few of my heavy metal images showing.  You can see their whole blog post here (its in german)…

I have no idea who this gentleman is that is gesturing to my images though…

Big Trouble in Little China…

So, I was in San Francisco/NorCal this past week seeing the sights, eating well and taking meetings (THANK YOU to all those that took time out of their day).  Now, I have been the the Bay Area a few times before but somehow I always seem to miss Chinatown and never have time to walk the streets and check things out.  One of my lifelong goals was to find the alley way in Chinatown where the epic gang fight between the Chang Sings and Wing Kong went down.  Unfortunately, it has been brought to my attention that the actual alley was a soundstage built in LA and only exists on film now.  So, I walked the lonely streets of Chinatown a defeated man and I could hardly contain my dismay…

Actually, I don’t really care and it was a good excuse to just walk around with my x100s and see what I could see.  That being said, I give you Tony Hu, the Chinese-American fishmonger taking a smoke break…
